Altered Halloween Book

Just a cute little Halloween project I wanted to share.  This is an old book from the thrift store.  I had a lot of fun jazzing it up for Halloween.  It turned out so cute I can't wait to make one for Christmas!

I'm linking up to Just a Girl.  Go check her out.

Halloween Table

I got the Halloween decorations out the other day and played around with them a little bit.  I had lots of fun putting this table together.  The picture is kind of at a funky angle but that is because it is so hard to photograph in front of a mirror and not get the rest of the mess room.
I found these weeds on my morning run.  It is kind of hard to see in this picture but the tall ones are a pretty orange and the shorter ones are a rust color.  The ones in the bottom of the vase are sunflower heads.  We have a ton of sunflowers growing around here and they are all drying out now.  I just lopped off their heads and put them in the vase for filler.   I looked like I was carrying the Olympic torch running home with them in my hands.  I kind of messed up my back in the process but it was definitely worth it. The bird is from dollar tree and the cute jack-o-lantern kettle came from a yard sale.

  This cute sign was painted by my mom last year.  I love the simplicity of it.

 The boots!  Aren't they the cutest things?  Megan and I made these last year.  She came up with the idea.  They are so fun.  I really love the moss growing out of them.  The burlap pumpkins came from a yard sale. 

I hope you like it.
